Governments and businesses that seek clean energy solutions all share a similar goal: build towards a carbon-free world, preferably as soon as possible. There are many innovative alternative fuel companies looking to transition towards and replace power systems that previously rely upon  traditional fossil fuels. These alternatives span ammonia, biodiesel, and so many other cutting edge technologies that create alternative fuels PR opportunities for cleantech brands.

Here are a few events taking place around the world right now:

Ammonia-Powered Tractors, Why Cutting Air Pollution Boosts Crops And Ford’s Big EV Expansion – Forbes

“Brooklyn-based Amogy is working to develop what it believes will be one of the future’s biggest renewable fuels: ammonia, which packs a large energy density and doesn’t produce any greenhouse gas emissions when burned. The startup, which is less than two years old, announced a milestone earlier this week: it had its first successful demonstration of an ammonia-powered tractor.

In March 2021, FedEx Corp. announced an audacious goal: to achieve carbon-neutral operations globally by 2040.”
